Abstract

We demonstrate parabolic optical pulse generation by manipulating the intensity and phase of individual longitudinal modes of a 40GHz picosecond optical pulse train in the spectral domain. Bright and dark parabolic pulses were generated from a 40GHz mode-locked fiber laser using a 64-channel arrayed waveguide grating pulse shaper. The obtained parabolic pulse, which can easily generate a linear chirping, is useful for a number of applications to optical signal processing applications, including pulse compression and time-domain optical Fourier transformation.
